    Now I don't want this thread to go to shit fast all I have is a simple question. If I buy from this site what payment method should I use to ensure I get a full refund if I get screwed over in some way (Defective/Incorrect or Missing product)?

    Also will I be given a tracking number if I use there Honk Kong air registered mail option($0.00)
    This is not a discussion on if the site is safe or legit!

    With Paypal your card info is protected, but you have to jump through some hoops to get your money back if something goes wrong and nds-card refuses to refund you.

    If you give your card info directly, doing a chargeback is dead simple if something goes wrong, but you also run the risk of someone getting a hold of your card info.

    As long as your bank has a good fraud protection, I'd just give them the card info and if you do start getting weird charges have the bank reverse them and send you a new card.

    EDIT: Ignore what I just said. I just checked and they do not support SSL (encryption), so your credit card info is wide open for any packet sniffer to see if you submit it. Because of that alone I wouldn't order anything from them, period.

    If I use my Business Debit card could I get a refund there without any problems or should I just buy A prepaid visa and they will refund the amount back to it?

    Sorry man, I edited my post with new info.

    Basically nothing about their site is encrypted (so there is no way in hell they are actually VeriSign Trusted like they claim to be). I wouldn't even put my address in a site like that, much less my card info... especially since they are straight up lying about their security.

    I used paypal to get my gateway from them. Took about 15 days because of X-mas & they were out of local (USA) stock.

    It doens't have a paypal clicky thing, you tell them you want paypal (it says that on their website) and they send you an email when they are ready to do the transaction. took about 2 hours for me, but I heard some people taking a day.

    Yet another site that lies about their verifications. At least they have encryption, but it's really sketchy when they have all those logos on the checkout page and they are all blurry, unprofessional, and don't link to the verification info like they should.

    You might be out of luck. I've heard rumors that MasterCard is no longer working with vendors that sell flashcarts.... similar to what paypal is doing. My understanding is Visa is your only option these days.

    I ordered from modchipdirect with a visa on friday expected delivery is tuesday got a tracking number and all is going well so far. as for prepaid cards tho from my experience with trying to use one for online transactions you would need one that you could register a billing address for otherwise it will fail every time. stay away from onevanilla cards i tried using one of those but all you can register on there site is your zip code.

    I used modchipsdirect. Very trustworthy. Had to give money to my friend because they don't take mastercard but I got it. Also there is a thread claiming nds-card.com scams.

    i dont think they accept paypal. You can use a prepaid card if you dont have a credit card but you might have to wait for the personalized card to come in the mail if your buying one from walmart or something or at least thats how it usually goes.

    No you cannot. My friend tried this. Visa prepaid cards only work within the US. You need a bank type visa.

    Modchipcentral has them back in stock, comes with a microsd usb reader as well as a usb charger for the 3DS. Official reseller, would recommend. I personally got mine from USAR4. I ordered it on the 23rd and got it on the 31st (it was delayed a few days due to 2+ feet of snow in Boston).
